Jack Russell, the former Great White singer, mentioned that he ”would love” to reconnect with the band’s founding member, Mark Kendall.
In a recent interview on “Ouch, You’re On My Hair” podcast, Jack said:
“I would love to see Mark again and talk to him again. It’s been many, many years. I have no grudges; I never have. And I never had any ill will towards him. I understand why they didn’t want me back in the band. I get it — I was a total mess. I wouldn’t want me back in the band either if I was them. But the whole slander thing was the only thing that really upset me. It was, like, ‘C’mon, really?’ It’s all the, ‘Oh, I would never do a show with that guy. He’s a total a*shole,’ blah blah blah blah, ‘but we wish him all the best.’ [Laughs] Okay. What is it?
“Like I said, I really don’t have any mean spirit [in me about it]. I joke around a lot about it. But if he called me tomorrow, I’d like to sit down and talk to him for hours.
“The unfortunate thing about the relationship — or lack thereof — is there’s only memories that him and I have together. There are only stories that we can recount to each other. I can’t tell somebody else, ‘Hey, remember when we did that?’ Mark and I have so many memories that I can only talk to him about. So there’s a good portion of my life I can’t discuss with the person that was most integral in it. So it’s a sad situation.
“I don’t understand why he hasn’t called me in all these years. I don’t have his number, or I’d call him. I tried for years to call him, and he never picked up. So, what are you gonna do?”
